July 30-31, 2005
Drove to Obsidian Trailhead Saturday afternoon.
We backpacked in to Scott Springs and made camp.
We got up at about 5:30 a.m. Sunday morning, ate breakfast and
left for the summit at 6:20 a.m.
We took the climbers trail up to just short of the Upper Collier
Glacier, then turned south for Middle Sister.
There was a 40-foot snowfield below the summit, and we cut footholds
in it to gain the summit.
When we arrived, there were two people on the summit who had come up
the South Ridge.
We stayed on the summit about 45 minutes, and went back to camp via
the Renfrew Glacier; it had lots of
blue ice showing on it.
We got back to camp packed up and were back in Eugene by 7:30 p.m.
Participating were non-member
